If you’re home alone and craving for something sweet, well, with just a handful of ingredients, a mug and a microwave, this recipe is made for you. Enjoy the familiar aroma of pandan, paired with a subtle hint of coconut, making this cake truly Asian and so satisfying.
|1 Tbsp Coconut Oil (melted)|
|2 Tbsp Pandan Leaf Extract|
|2 Tbsp White Sugar|
|2 Tbsp Shredded Coconut (1 Tsp for topping)|
|1/4 Cu Self-Raising Flour*|
|1 Tbsp Kaya (for topping)|
- In a microwaveable mug, put in coconut oil, pandan leaf extract, coconut milk, sugar, and egg. Whisk together well.
- Add in the shredded coconut and self-raising flour and whisk again, until no lumps left.
- Microwave for 2-3 minutes (on high setting) until the cake has cooked and risen.
Serve immediately, with a teaspoon (or two) of kaya and a sprinkle of shredded coconut.
NB: If you don’t have self-raising flour, replace it with plain flour. Add 1½ tsp of baking powder & ¼ tsp salt to 1 cup of plain flour, mix them all very well together. Use ¼ cup of this flour mixture for the stated recipe instead of self-raising flour*
